Internships and a final exam complete the formative course.

The educational activities include classroom teaching, workshops and internships, in order to acquire wide-ranging skills that can be readily transferable into the world of work.

During the whole university career, the various skills acquired will be assessed through written and oral examinations.
The degree exam consists in writing a paper/thesis, that will be evaluated through methods similar to those of a written exam but not in the presence of the student. Should the supervisor deem the oral discussion of the thesis to be necessary, he/she may require it.

Qualifications/expertise after completing the program

Students, according to the chosen curriculum, will be able to have multiple work possibilities in the industrial, services, finance, public administration or tourism (both public and private) sectors, thanks to their developed interdisciplinary ability (economic, legal, management and statistic-mathematical abilities). The continuation of studies could take place through Master's Degree programmes in the Department of Economics and, in general, in all pertinent programmes in all Science of Economics or Economic-Business Sciences classes.
